This fantastic aid allows even the most anxious of patients to undergo the treatment they need, and can even serve as a means of improving confidence.
Sedation has relaxing and anti-anxiety effects, helping patients to have treatment without feeling overwhelmed. We offer both IV (intravenous) and oral sedation and the practice and we will ask you some questions to help us establish which may be best for your particular needs.
As oral sedation is less fast-acting than IV sedation and not as powerful, patients with extreme dental phobia may wish to opt for the latter.
IV sedation is administered directly into a vein using a cannula (a very small needle) and produces a relaxing effect. You can expect to feel relaxed and drowsy once the sedation takes effect, but you’ll still be able to communicate with your dentist throughout. After a procedure is carried out under sedation, you’ll need to be chaperoned for 24 hours post procedure.
We’ve seen many patients benefit from the effects of sedation. It’s not uncommon for nervous patients to have sedation just once, and find they no longer need it for future procedures, having changed their perspective of the dentists and overcome their nerves. If you’re a nervous patient, please let us know and we’ll do whatever we can to accommodate you.Back to General Dentistry
